We Are Now Open! (with adjusted hours)

On May 11, the governor of Maine allowed retail stores in rural counties of the state -- where there was no evidence of community spread of the virus -- to reopen with safety protocols in place. We were happy to reopen, and we used this week to observe the quiet return of customers, making sure that safety precautions were adhered to or improved by both staff and people entering the shop.

We are asking that all customers entering the shop wear a face mask and sanitize their hands upon entering the shop with sanitizer provided at the door. Our shop is large enough to easily maintain a 6-foot distance between others with a 5-customer limit. With the nice weather finally arriving and the door open most of the time, there is good air flow too.

At this time, and until further notice, we will not be accepting returns (except for defective products). If you are unsure of the quantity of yarn you will need, we will happily reserve a skein or two for you. We hope you understand that this has 100% to do with the safety of others.

We continue to keep busy adding more yarns that can be purchased directly from the Heavenly Yarns section on the Fiber of Maine website. We are offering free shipping on a purchase of $30 or more until the end of May. (Use code LOVEMAINE in the discount code box at the checkout.) There is an option at the checkout for curbside pickup too!

We continue to offer curbside pickup as well as shipping for any product that is not available on our website. The free shipping on a purchase of $30 or more applies to phone orders too.

Through May, our hours are Monday through Saturday 11 am-4 pm. We are reserving 10-11 am on these mornings for phone orders and 4-6 pm each of these days for half-hour private (shopping) appointments scheduled ahead of time.

We can't let you know enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.

Shop Samples and Online Sale Yarn

We hope to finish quite a few of our WIPs (works in progress) in time for our June update. It has been difficult to find time to knit when most of our free time outside our brick and mortar store has been working on our online shop, or just resting from an exhausting (in all ways) two months!

Once in a while, we have a friend of the shop knit us a sample garment or accessory, or we receive a sample garment from a yarn company. Mostly, we prefer to knit the yarns ourselves so that we have firsthand knowledge of the yarns to share with our customers.

If you need some inspiration for your next project, maybe the sale section of our online shop may give you some price inspiration! If you don't see something you "need" right now, you may want to check back as we seem to be adding to it weekly.

The purchase of these yarns is included in the free shipping offer of $30 or more. Use code LOVEMAINE in the discount code box at the checkout.

Cheryl's Favorite Sock Pattern

Cheryl's father turned 80 years old in April and of all the people she has given knitted gifts to in the past, her father is the one that makes her feel like he understands and appreciates her gestures of love. She has made a pair of socks for him before -- in String Theory's Bluestocking (hand-dyed Bluefaced Leicester) -- and he loved them so much that she used it again to knit these special birthday socks. This makes her happy too because she loves knitting with Bluestocking!

Cheryl's uses Emily's Favourite Socks pattern by Emily Foden. This pattern is about a $4.00 purchase on Ravelry. Cheryl says this is a straightforward pattern that has a roomier rather than a "too close" fit, and she thinks the pattern matched with Bluestocking makes the nicest pair of socks.

Sock Yarn is a Great Summer Investment!

Socks are a great summer project because they travel well: They are small, and other than when it comes time to turning the heel, most sock knitters don't need to refer to a pattern when knitting a basic sock, making it an easy grab and go project.

Since we last emailed, we have added more of our sock yarn lines for direct purchase on our website. We still have many more that are not listed, including our sport, dk and worsted weights.

Please feel free to call us if you would like to talk sock yarn options!

Needles

We have always had a few needles available for sale on the Fiber of Maine website. Although the needles are not Maine made, we had them there just in case someone wanted to do a "one stop" shop or would like to put together a gift project.

We added a few more needle options which you can buy directly online from our website, or feel free to call us for something you are looking for!

Local Color Gallery Welcomes Artist Jamien St. Pierre

Local Color Gallery -- our shop's next-door neighbor -- is pleased to be adding Jamien St. Pierre's furniture work to the gallery's creative selection. Jamien St. Pierre states that every object that is part of our lives should be a pleasure to interact with. Things we use, see and touch every day ought to gracefully fulfill their intended purpose -- but also be a joy for the senses. He finds that the distinction between art on the wall, and the art of everyday objects, to be blurry.

In his own work he primarily uses wood to make creative heirloom furniture and architectural components. As a self-taught artisan, he hand-builds each unique piece of furniture, guided by understanding how it will be a part of the lives of the people who interact with it daily. St. Pierre goes on to explain that shapes and forms do more than draw the eye, they must also fit the people and purpose for which they are intended. Materials and finish are chosen for a purpose -- rugged durability for a family table, lightness for a chair, polished details begging to be touched. The designs themselves draw from many traditions, and the artist's own constant search for innovation and elegance. Much of his furniture design is deceptively simple, but a closer look reveals complexity and detail. That attention to details extends throughout each piece, leading to discovering new subtleties over time.

St. Pierre's work can be seen now in person at Local Color Gallery at 135 High St. in Belfast.

Our Shipping Policy

Even though our Web site is not designed with a shopping cart, we will happily ship anything to you.

At this time, we only ask for the exact cost of the shipping; there is no handling charge.

By the way, the man in the photo is our well-loved UPS deliveryman. He is always smiling and happy, even when hauling heavy boxes down the stairs. (He must be a secret wannabe knitter.)
